Hiltie's only trick that I taught her was how to jump over a tennis court net with the command "over". Hiltie knows about 50 commands that she uses as a skilled companion dog.

Arrival Story:
Hiltie is a Canine Companions for Independence (CCI) puppy in training and I am her puppy raiser, CCI raiser dogs for people with disabilities other than blindness. Check out www.cci.org UPDATED: 2-26-05 Hiltie Graduated as a skilled companion dog, she now lives with her new family, but I am lucky enough to still be a part of her life, which I am so thankful for!!

Hiltie's parents are CCI OMSI and CCI Taiko, both Golden Retrivers. Hiltie has 6 siblings named: Horsham, Hyson, Happy II, Hessie, Hannan and Hemma II. The "H" litter was born in Carmichael, CA on November 19, 2002. 2 months later Hiltie went to the CCI campus in Santa Rosa, CA and then she was able to come home with me! We started our journey together right after I turned in my first puppy, Kedra. Hiltie stayed with me until August 21, 2004 when she was turned back into CCI for her 6 months of advanced training. Hiltie did very well and all her reports were great! I was so excited when I heard the news that she would be graduating!!

Anyway, take a look...it's a cool site :)

Hi everyone!
I'm back at my first home with Laura, she's going to take care of me while my famliy is on vacation for 2 weeks. I've had fun so far! Yesterday I saw my boyfriend Magic again and Shawn. The last time I saw Magic was August 20, 2004! We remembered each other right away!! Laura has a new puppy McKenna, she's ok, but I would rather play with the big dogs or sleep. I think Laura said we're going to see some of my friends that I knew when I was a puppy, that will be fun! I know they can't wait to see me!

All for now,

If you're in the Sacramento area and like to play golf, there is a great tournament put on by the Gold Rush Champions of Sacramento. All the money goes to Canine Companions for Independence, last year the tournament brought in almost $70,000 for the dogs!!! Go to www.golf4cci.com for more information.
